Really? I didn't even know that, lol! Well, I got the impression that the whole series kind of felt like a parody, but I didn't know that they parodied specific movies. That's pretty cool. It would also explain some of the very unusual settings and stories. I was happy just thinking they were alll completely random lol.


I thought it was pretty obvious when the "Bowling for Columbine" episode started up. Most of the episodes were based off of Asian films, so a lot of the references still flew over my head.

Why is everyone listing the good stuff?

The word "popular" to me means being widely recognized (pop music, pop culture) so being unpopular means un-recognized. If you mean "a semi-popular anime that people dont like" its not the same thing.
The question to me means "whats the anime you like that no-ones really ever heard of/passed over?"
Not to bog it down but then it goes into which social circles you swim in and what people consider "popular" and "good"/ most watched and discussed. Online and real life communities can be vastly different.

Anyways, I'd choose Aoi Bungaku. Great anime that only some online bros have heard of and No RL bros have but thats me personally.

Ooh, Aoi Bungaku... I liked the idea for that, but I'm not sure I was a huge fan of the execution. I liked that they brought in different directors/character designers for the different novels, but some of the stories felt a little flat, especially for a show that was trying to get younger generations interested in classic literature.

Um, if we're counting manga, Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro is in my top 3 or so. The anime was good enough to make me look into the manga.

For purely anime though, I never hear anyone talk about Needless!, which was absolutely retarded, but amused me greatly.

That's a good way to describe Needless.

Every anime in my watched list that never got green lit for a second season, which forced me to read the manga or novels to see how they ended.....so like half the anime I've seen

Sorry folks, there are already threads asking specifically for unpopular anime shows, and shows which people don't think get discussed much on forums, so I'm closing this one. Please post your choices in one of the existing threads.

/forumtopic-798353/your-favorite-animes-that-you-rarely-seen-someone-posting-about-on-forums

Thanks.
